Food helps create community ...
Riverview Rotarians were out this last week helping serve a lovely pancake breakfast at Norwood School. As we break bread (or in this case shared a pancake breakfast) it is an opportunity for us to create a community within the school - a safe place for parents and children.
The early morning breakfast saw between 200-300 parents, students and their siblings enjoy the warm morning meal. Thank you to our wonderful volunteers and donors who made this possible!

Help the children play & give today!
No childhood is complete without play and the physical, social, and emotional benefits it provides. The children who live at Hogar Miguel León don’t have a playground where they can enjoy safe active play—where they can develop large muscle skills, acquire communications skills through sharing and taking turns, form friendships, and exercise creativity.

We never give up ...
It was lovely to have speakers from Boyle Street Community Services join our club. I’ve been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to tour the centre years ago as well as work with Boyle outreach workers in the past. The passion, kindness and respect from volunteers and staff working in the inner city is commendable.
